    This is classic, turn-of-the-century-style emo for those old enough to remember the scene before the eyeliner an hairspray brigade came along and spoiled it all for everyone. [Mar 2013, p.98]

    Conduit is short, vicious, angry and their most singular album to date but this lean and stripped down approach isn't a total success.
  3. The departure of backing vocalist Ryan Richards robs the band of one of their dimensions, and come the lunk-headed thrash of ‘Grey’ you’re left wondering if this renewed heaviness is there to paper over a lack of ideas.

    If you came in as I did in 2008 on what might have been their most eclectic and defining record, you might find this a little less appealing simply for its lack of emphasis on the melody and dialed up screamo.

    It leaves less room for their more usual fluid melodies, though both Nails and Best Friends And Hospital Beds recapture their emotive sensibilities. [Feb 2013, p.104]

    An occasional penchant for dewy-eyed emoting aside, Conduit sounds like the work of a band with bags of energy and a surfeit of creative gas in the tank.
